Isn't the weather in Aruba pretty much the same all year long? Warm and dry! I think anytime is ok to lay out, but as others have said, take it easy under the sun, as it will burn you like a crisp in a short amount of time. Take plenty of sunscreen -- on our beach/pool days we typically go through one bottle of sunscreen for 4 people per day. The good thing, is that there is some great Aruba aloe lotion to be found all over the island.

I highly recommend some pre-trip tanning sessions if you can.. It saved mine and my husbands skin big time!
Every year we have gone we end up red and peely for the first week until we finally start tanning. No amount of sunscreen could prevent it.. I think because we spend so much time doing activities , diving etc etc,, that we just don't re-apply enough. This last trip we both had some tanning sessions before we left and Im definitely going that route from now on!
